    Hmmmm.....

    I sure hope our club rep didnt vote yes to kill the only 2 remaining active Supers in our state.

    Heres a sneak peek at the SOON TO BE RELEASED 2009 USRCCA Rules



    2.2 - Class 1 - Super Crawler Class:

    2.2.1 - Vehicle wheelbase is limited to a minimum of 16 inches and a maximum of 18 inches. This is

    determined by measuring from centerline of front axle stub to centerline of rear axle stub, with all the

    wheels pointing straight ahead, with the vehicles suspension holding it's own weight.

    2.2.2 - No limits on tire type or size.

    2.2.3 - No limits to steering configuration.

    2.2.4 - Super class bodiless over all dimension of the complete chassis must be at least 12"overall

    length, 3" overall width, and 3.75" overall height

    2.2.5 - If at any point during a run your vehicle falls out of these vehicle specs for any reason you will

    be required to take a touch penalty and correct the problem.

    I like the 16-18inch wheel base rule. I think it will be a decent guideline for the Super class.
    Give 20 people the same chassis & axles, and they'll build a crawler 20 different ways.

    Re: Hmmmm.....

    wish I'd have been paying attention back when this was an active point......I'd like an "open" or unlimited class like super used to be, I don't like the prospect of turning people away from a comp because they're just too long, or too short or whatever that would make them fall out of legal for super/2.2/1.9.....maybe I'm one of the few that thinks that way....though, that could be because turnout for the comp I tried to organize was almost 0, due to the fact that there's no organization up here.....and that's quite hard to overcome....and with it being that there's so few people that run together, I don't want to have to turn anyone away.....
